Longville, MN (March 1, 2016) Soaring Eagle Resort and Casino in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan was the home to Rounds 11 and 12 for the ACS Snocross Championship.

Team LaVallee’s Pro Rider, Kyle Pallin had an overall great weekend of racing. On Friday, Pallin qualified 5th for the Pro Open Round 11 Final, with 1st and 4th place finishes in his respective qualifying heats. Off of the line of the Final, Pallin had a mid-pack start putting him in the 8th place position. Pallin rode with much determination in the 20 lap final and was able to pass his way up to an awesome 4th place. In Pro Open Round 12 on Saturday, Pallin again, had excellent qualifying rounds taking a 1st and 2nd place, which noted him the number one qualifier for the Pro Open Final. On the line of the Round 12 Final, there were multiple restarts due to other riders jumping prior to the race to begin, but when the green light went off, Pallin shot out of the gate and was pinched in the first turn, causing him to start mid-pack. Pallin continued to push hard and was working his way through the pack when an unfortunate off mid-race pushed Pallin to the 12th place spot but was able to work his way up and finished in a notable 8th place.
For Team LaVallee’s Grassroots riders, Sport Rider, Evan Daudt had another victorious weekend.
